Sorry to reply to my own post.  The last yum upgrade was the following from
the /var/log/yuym.log

Nothing there to show some rpm problem.  I hate to say it, but I couldn't

I've been just suspending it for a long time.
After the reboot, it works correctly.

Don't know about that, but at least it now works.
